    while attempting to take out an LCD screen, I , a dumbass, broke one of the cords ( i forgot their names) going from one side of the motherboard from the other, at the bottom of the psp. now the psp doesnt power on, and i am going crazy. not to mention it is my friends psp 1001.


    i was actually going to buy it from him, but im pretty screwed right now. any suggestions???? [​IMG]

    Can you still skin the cords, solder, then tape?

    If they really are wires then a solder job would easily fix it. If it is a ribbon cable that you cut then you are SOL aside from replacing the cable (and part that is hardwired to it?).

    Well you shouldn't try anything and get it fixed by someone who knows what they're doing.
    You'll totally hate yourself if you mess it up more.

    Start buying Bricked PSP. Then salvage the parts.

    Money can fix any PSP problem. The amount of your screwedness depends on what part the ribbon cable is attached to and how much a replacement costs. Take a look at this pic and see if you can find the cable that was cut.

    Well, if you can get some spare parts and have the patience, then it should be no problem to fix. If you're not up to it, get someone else to do it for you. No sense in making a bad situation worse.

    That's the ribbon cable for the UMD drive. It is surprising that the PSP wouldn't boot at all with just that being damaged. I would tape over the cut ends on both sides and put it back together to see if it will boot up. If you weren't planning on using it for original UMDs then you shouldn't be as screwed as you originally thought.

    Just to clarify -- It worked right before you opened it up? I'm doubtful that it's got anything to do with the power switch unless you unplugged it or broke it. It might be the battery not making contact. Try plugging it in and see if it lights the LED and/or turns on as well.

    I'd say that there probably has to be something disconnected somewhere along the power line (or shorted).

    Since it sounds like you aren't particularly skilled in working on the internals of small devices I would have to agree with JKR Firefox and say to just leave it alone and have someone else take a look at it. It's a dicey situation considering it is your friend's PSP and I'm assuming he didn't know you were going to be taking it apart. Good luck fessing up and getting the PSP fixed.

    (Note that I tried extremely hard not to say anything to berate you since I've broken a few things with similar occurrences myself.)

    It is definitely a short or the power switch, or you have blown the motherboard, because there isn't a single cable in the psp that you can break which will prevent it from powering up when using the battery.

    its actually pretty much mine without the transfer of money, and plus he didnt feel like replacing the busted LCD himself.


    what exactly do u mean by blowing the motherboard??and where is the power line?

    Isn't that the definition of stealing? Just kidding...

    By blowing the motherboard he means that there might have been a short circuit that caused a/some component/s to get fried (or at least a fuse to get blown -- not sure if the PSP has one but I know the DS and GBA do so it's possible). To find the start of the power line either look at the battery terminals or the AC input that is bright yellow. And from there it goes to pretty much everywhere in the PSP...
